SO I have work today.
Which I don't mind.
Except that instead of the usual outdated pop music playlist,
Its the same five Christmas songs.
I feel like its an unpopular opinion, but I really don't like listening to Christmas music.
I mean, I like it if its playing in the background while decorating, or some other holiday task. But I don't get how people can just sit around and listen to Christmas Pandora!!
Here are my reasons:
1. You hear the same song too many times, just by different people
2. When people try and cover Christmas songs, they make an effort of trying to sound unique and different. They drag out words longer than the original, they belt out random words, they try to make it sound more current...no, Im sorry. Frosty The Snowman will never sound any cooler than it already does (no pun intended).
3. People start listening to Christmas music IN NOVEMBER.
Im sorry I cant handle this monopoly of music for over a month!!
With all of that said...
There are some exceptions which I will gladly share:
Let Me Sleep- Pearl Jam
I would listen to this even if it wasn't a Christmas song. Love it. Love Pearl Jam.
Little St. Nick - Beach Boys
Gotta love the Beach Boys
Christmas In Hollis- RUN DMC
I love RUN DMC, and this is awesome.
Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses
Always liked this haha
Hannukah Song - Adam Sandler
Not Christmas... but all three of these are hysterical
Jingle Bells - Barbara Streisand
I do not listen to Barbara Streisand.. But even I can admit she does a god job of this,
And its kind of really funny.
Merry Christmas (I dont want to fight tonight) - The Ramones
Lame video, good song. Love the Ramones.
You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
I legitimately love this song lol, My favorite actual Christmas song.
Mele Kelikimaka - Bing Crosby
I love this, Hawaii Christmas sounds chill to me.
We Wish You A Reggae Christmas - Yellowman
This is ridiculous lol but i seriously love it
What Are You Doing New Years Eve? - Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Not Christmas... but I'm obsessed with both of them. And ukuleles. JGL couldn't get more adorable.
White Christmas - Red Hot Chili Peppers
LOL ok randomly after this show... last July... Chad Smith from RHCP, the drummer, sang White Christmas. Im sorry, they're just my favorite.
Happy Xmas, War is Over - John Lennon
Well, this song is great. And John Lennon died yesterday, 32 years ago. There will never be another like him, no talent will come close. The world should take a lesson.
Also, Happy Birthday to Jim Morrison yesterday!! He would have been 69!!
